Maggie, much like Olga, thinks that cake/cupcakes are a great way to make people happy. For another of her friend's birthdays she requested some baseball themed cupcakes. "Nothing too girly" she said. The cupcakes are topped with French vanilla buttercream ground and grass. The edges are rolled in crushed cookie, for that nice dirty effect. I then made some bases, jerseys, bats and balls out of gum paste.
I baked my first cookie at the age of 5, and have been in love ever since. The smiles on people's faces when they taste my creations is what keeps my passion alive!
